First Fruits Revisited

Another Halloween is behind us but I love for the Fall season to linger. As our thoughts turn to Thanksgiving and the holiday season, it's only fitting that the Papertrey's Senior Team challenge was to revisit First Fruits. It's such a timeless and pretty stamp set, featuring autumnal elements of nature.

My first project that I created with First Fruits is a set of blessing cards for the girls. I thought it would be nice for them to take a few minutes this Thanksgiving and write down what they are thankful for. I created these large hanging tags by die cutting paper with the Library Card Tag. The top layers were made by layering a Dainty Doily (more in my shop soon) with a die cut from Tag Sale 2 and First Fruits patterned paper. The pretty acorn images were stamped onto another PTI die and then layered with the words. I put all the elements including name tags created with Small Metal Rim Tags onto metal rings. These will hang nicely from an autumn centerpiece on our dining room table.
Under the doily and smaller tag, I added some old ledger paper and more words from the First Fruits set. This is where the girls can make a list or write a short paragraph about the things they are thankful for this Thanksgiving season.
Next up, I used the same tag elements and papers to create a Thanksgiving card. I added some burlap under the doily for some textural appeal.
With the addition of a brad, I created a swivel card instead of hanging tags. A unique twist to make a fun card.
For some pretty packaging I used a Brown Paper Sack tied with Satin Luxe Ribbon in Terracotta Tile tied with a Small Metal Rim Tag.
Hope you enjoy! Be sure to check out Nichole's and the other Senior Team blogs to see their beautiful First Fruit creations:

Holiday Bookmarks

Edit: Tami asked what the die is under the metal tags.......those are from Papertrey's Tea for Two die collection. The label fits a stamp image from the Tea for Two set, however I use it for lots of other projects. A good staple die to have. :)

Happy Halloween! Hope you have a spooktacular time tonight and get lots of treats. Today is Design Team Saturday at Cosmo Cricket. The design team does some great challenges every Saturday....and today there is a formal announcement about my guest design team spot. You can check it out here. I'll be starting my official guest spot next weekend.

I also have some fun projects to share with you today.....bookmarks. Using the Copic Sketch Marker colors below I first created a pretty bookmark using Papertrey's All Booked Up stamp set.
Bookmarks are so easy to create when using Papertrey's bookmark die. The base paper for my bookmark is Cosmo Cricket's Circa 1934 patterned paper.
I added my punched image to some die cut felt using Papertrey's Limitless Layers 1-3/4" Circle Collection.
The back of the bookmark has another layer of solid cardstock, some old book print and a pieced sentiment from the bookmark set.
This next ensemble features more bookmarks made with All Booked Up and the coordinating bookmark dies from Papertrey. If you're looking for a fun gift idea this holiday season, bookmarks just might be the ticket.
This bookmark trio features more of the Cosmo Circa 1934 patterned paper and some darling images from an old school book.
The tops of my bookmarks feature a new Etsy item from my shop. I'll now be carrying Small White Metal Rim Tags in sets of ten. Perfect little accents for bookmarks, cards, tags, scrapbooking, jars, and gift packaging. A 1" circle punch is perfect if want to fill the centers of the tags with patterned paper....or shimmery paper stamped with sentiments like I did for my bookmarks.
Wanna create some fantastic bookmark gifts? My new Bookmark Slicks will be great. Bookmarks slide right in to create a visible gift that is oh so cute. The Bookmark Slicks are sold out at this time but I'll be adding more to the shop within the next week or so. I love being able to add unique items to my shop like this.
To embellish my bookmark packaging, I used a Red Sparkly Spring, another embellished metal tag, some red and white baker's twine from Papertrey and a Holly Jolly Jingle Bell(more will be added to the shop soon).
I also made some book plate stickers to add to the inside of book. I die cut these using Papertery's full size adhesive sheets. You just peel off the backing and stick them inside a book. Such a personalized gift. The book plates fit perfectly into my Short Sleeves. I'll be adding more of these to my shop soon too if they sell out...along with the Long Sleeves.
So if you're looking for a creative gift this holiday season, I think books are a great gift. If you want to give a gift early, give a gift of a Christmas themed book. These delightful stories always warm my heart around the holiday season. Nothing like curling up in my big fluffy chair....sitting by the fire....and reading a heartfelt holiday story. By adding in some bookmarks with my cute Bookmark Slicks and some personalized book plates, you've got a nifty little gift. Hope you enjoy!

Note: I have been seeking out some very unique items for my Etsy shop and will be adding them a little at a time over the holiday season. Be sure to check back often....many items are selling out quickly but they'll be back. Feel free to send me an Etsy conversation if you have any questions about items in my shop, larger quantities, etc. And as always, I really want to thank all of you that support my Etsy shop. Your continued loyalty means so much to me and I'm enjoying the conversations I have with many of the repeat customers I'm getting to know.

Happy Halloween

Edit: Here is a link for witch's finger cookies. As for the scavenger hunt, clues are given out on a sheet of paper. Teams are formed and you're given a certain amount of time to return to home base. You drive all around to find the clues where certain items are hidden. Some of the clues are just to find items that you may have in your car or purse or at your house. Points are given for each found item. Winner takes the pot of money. Extra points are given for wearing a costume. It's a great time.

Lots of fun happenings around here for Halloween. Tonight the girls are attending a Halloween costume party and dance at school. The girls' costumes are cute!

Jordan and I made these witch's finger cookies a few days ago. They were creepy!
And all my treat packages have been delivered and mailed off to teachers and friends.
Tomorrow we're off to a yearly scavenger hunt. Adults pair up with kids and we drive all over to find scavenger hunt clues. One of the best events of the year!! Hope you have a frightfully good time this weekend!!

Note: There are some new items up in the shop just in time for the holiday season. I would like to take a minute to thank all of my wonderful Etsy customers. Many of you are repeat customers and I love to see your name pop up on my email. I wonder what you do with all my goodies and I hope you continue to enjoy my creative goodness. I am striving to make my shop more and more unique with items that have the can't miss *Mishie Made It* look. Thanks so much for stopping by friends.

Beautiful rose card...

Some days you just need to sit and color. It makes you feel artsy. Good for the creative soul. This card is for my mom. After having surgery, she deserves a beautiful get well card. For my beautiful colored rose, I used Papertrey's Year of Flowers: Roses stamp set. Such a beautifully illustrated flower.
The papers on my card today are from Cosmo Cricket's new Circa 1934 collection. Even more beautiful in person. Note: I got my box of Cosmo goodies this week and am drooling over every single item. Can't wait to share my creations with you next month as I take on the Guest Designer spot for November. :)

For my flower, I stamped the image onto some red grid paper from the Circa 1934 line. I love the unexpected graphic feel it gives to flower image. To color in the image, I used Copic markers in these colors:R02, R20, R24 and RV29. Coloring images like this is so gratifying to me. It takes a little time but oh so worth it.
I cut the colored image out, glittered it up and adhered it to my embellished Large Manila Parcel Tag with pop dots. The suede-like leaves were stamped with the rose leaf image from Year of Flower: Roses. To finish off the card, I tied ribbon around the card front, adding a Vintage Button tied with black string.
Since my card was so dimensional I packaged it up in a Brown Paper Sack embellished with a distressed Dainty Doily.
The center of the doily was a perfect place to add some cardstock stickers from the Cosmo Circa 1934 collection. I personalized the sack by creating a simple tag using a Small Manila Parcel Tag and a leftover snippet of a sticker.
Such a pretty little ensemble....I know my mom will keep it out front and center so she can see it all the time. She just loves my homemade cards.

A challenge for you: Have you sent out any cards lately? How about sending out 5 cards this week. I'll list my five people who I want to send cards to. Feel free to share your list in the comments. It feels so good to send out cards to loved ones.....and even better to be on the receiving end. You're guaranteed to make someones day. And this will give you a reason to get crafty. Writing down a list really helps to keep your card making sessions organized.

Here's my list of five people I need to send cards to this week:
1. Thinking of you card for my friend Missi who lost her sister recently
2. Sympathy card for the family of my high school principal
3. Congrats card to my single mom niece who got a great job
4. Thinking of you card for a high school teacher who has cancer
5. Card with photos of the girls for Cousin Myrtle who is 101

Sparkly Holiday Sacks

Happy Friday Friends! No school today and the house got cleaned yesterday so we are home free! Feels good to hang out with my girls. My mom is having shoulder surgery today so as soon as Dad brings her home, we'll be going to their house to take care of Grandma. I have beef stew and homemade bread going right now so we can bring supper.

Before I get to my project for today, I have some fun stuff to talk about. I'm preparing to do a big holiday kick off starting next week here on the blogaroonie. I'm working out the final details but stay tuned for lots of fun kits and projects, just in time for the holidays. Also, I'll be having more Papertrey Make + Save projects soon and starting in November I'll be doing my guest designer posts for Cosmo Cricket on Saturdays. Lots of fun stuff coming up. :)

Okay, on to today's project. I have decided that holiday cards are going to be big gift items for friends and family this holiday season. I always try to come up with something new but I always come back to the cards. Everyone loves them and they are such a useful and practical gift. So I'm all about creating beautiful sacks to package the cards in.

Here we go with another version. Today I'm using lots of items from my Etsy shop so you'll be able to do a lot of one stop shopping if you want to recreate my projects. I just organized my shop so that all the products are grouped together by like items, it looks so much better and similar items are easier to find. Remember, I love to freely share my projects for you to recreate for gifts for friends, family, teachers, etc......but you do not have permission to sell my creations or tweeked versions. Just a friendly reminder. :)

My Brown Paper Sacks are the base for my gift sacks. I covered them with red and cream sheet music, oh so pretty for the holidays. I got mine from the music shop where Jordan takes her guitar lessons.
The tag for my card is the show stopper here. Using my Medium Manila Parcel Tags, I applied adhesive to the tag and placed it on the back side of the candy cane patterned paper(all patterned paper from My Mind's Eye). Then I simply cut around the tag and punched a new hole. Such a simple way to make patterned tags. I then cut a circle of patterned paper to fit on a Large White Metal Rim Tag. The felt snowflake was cut from Papertrey felt with snowflake dies and was tied with Vintage Buttons and Red Baker's Twine. Sentiment is from PTI too.
Here comes the sparklies. Using my Small Clothespins, I created some sparkly, red clippies. Oh so fun for the holiday season. I also added a Red Sparkly Sprig. I finished off the tag with a Jolly Jingle Bell and some red and white baker's twine.
For the fun, glittered clippie, let me show you how to make those. Take a Small Clothespin and adhere two strips of 1/4" Scor-Tape to the flat sides. Trim with sharp scissors. Peel off the paper backing, exposing the sticky adhesive.
Plunge the clothespins into red glitter. I'm using Martha's glitter, available at Michael's in festive, holiday colors. Press the clothespins into the glitter firmly, really making the glitter stick to the adhesive....allowing even coverage. And there you have it. Glitterfied, glorious clippies just waiting to be used on your holiday projects. Use them for notes, attaching gift cards to the tree, fun garlands...lots and lots of uses.
Wanna make it like it Mish? Here's a photo of all the goodies you'll need. I've given links above in red but here's the list again: Small Clothespins, Large White Metal Rim Tags, Red Sparkly Sprigs, Jolly Jingle Bells, Medium Manila Parcel Tags and Brown Paper Sacks. Most of my products are sold in quantities of 5 or 10 so you'll easily be able to calculate quantities needed for your projects.
The Red Sparkly Sprigs are in limited quantities today so get 'em while they're hot, folks. :)
I hope you enjoy today's project! Thanks for stopping by. And again, thanks for all your wonderful comments lately. You guys sure know how to make a girl feel good. :)

More October Papertrey Projects

Hey friendies, I have another post today featuring a few more October Papertrey projects.  All of the new products from this month can be found here.  This first card uses Becky's Merry Little Christmas stamp set, dies and Christmas Prints.  Carnival Ticket is from my Etsy shop.
This next card features a background created with Pine's new Holly Jolly and Fillable Frames #9 stamp set.  Candied Apple Carnival Tickets are here.
Love the look of stitching right over the Carnival Tickets.  Buttons and ribbon are the new Pinefeather color.
This next features one of my favorite flowers from Nichole's Year of Flowers sets..the marigolds.  If you love to use your Copics on the flower sets, try stamping the floral images onto patterned paper and then adding definition to the image with your Copics, then cutting out the images.  So fool proof and quick.  Here, I've just basically outline each flower petal with a darker yellow color and then did some blending with lighter yellows and my colorless blender.  Stamping just the line images as background paper really adds an interesting look too.  
This card makes for a wonderful birthday card for my aunt this month.  I used a signature set from Dawn along with some snippets of patterned paper on the inside of the card.  So fun to open the card and find even more goodness on the inside.
Thanks again to all of  you for your kind words to me the past few days.  You guys just rock!!  I'm off to get some things around the house and shop today.  My mom goes in for shoulder surgery later this week and I want to be all caught up so I can play nurse.

Dainty Doilies + Ornament Tags

Hi friends.  Here I am again today with a sparkly new post.  I am really excited about getting a head start on my holiday wrappings this year.  I am going to keep my gifts simple and mostly homemade this year. And simple tags and wraps are going to be my go to gift wrap.  Today I'm sharing some sweet tags that I'm creating with Parcel Tags (today I'm using the Large and Small Tags) from my Etsy shop along with a brand new item...Dainty Doilies.  The doilies will be sold in sets of 10 and measure 4" in diameter.  Doilies are such a hot crafting item right now.  You can stamp on them, paint them, cut them up, use them as background paper, sew on them, create layered embellishments..the possibilities are endless!
Okay, let's get started.  Using patterned paper from Crate Paper and Dawn's new Vintage Ornaments Die Collection, I die cute the long ornaments...making sure that a cute snowflake was centered in the round part of the ornament.  No additional stamping on the ornaments was necessary because the patterned paper shows plenty of design.  
I then cut a Dainty Doily in half with my paper trimmer and adhered it to a Large Manila Parcel Tag.  I also added some scalloped edged patterned paper to the bottom of the tags, creating really decorative tag.  I used the Small Scalloped Border on the same Crate Paper patterned paper.  I then stitched around the tag with brown thread.  My sewing machine is completely wonky right now. I think I've gotten the $10 of use out of it from when my mom bought it at a garage sale.  Look at the Dainty Doilies, aren't they frilly and pretty?
Next up I added my ornaments with a rhinestone center, tied Lavender Moon Vintage Buttons and Wrinkle Ribbon loopy strings for tying the tag onto a sack.  I also added some Chunky Snowflake Glitter around the left edge of the tags.  Look for this in my Etsy shop soon.  Soo fun to use on holiday projects...instant snow!  You can use a glue pen to adhere the snow glitter but I like to use a clear, liquid glue and smear it all around...this gives a thicker coverage and allows more glitter to adhere to your project.  Be prepared for your craft space to be totally snow covered.  :)  Zoom in on the photo for glorious glitter magnification.  
Next up I needed some sort of to/from area on my tags.  I ended up covering the back of the tags with more snowflake patterned paper.  Then I stamped to/from sentiments from Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers onto scraps of the patterned paper.  I cut the words out with scissors and adhered them to Small Manila Parcel Tags.  More snow glitter was added, leaving enough space for me to write names.  These tags were easily tied up with the Wrinkle Ribbon.  I love this look on the back of the tags...completed adorned from front to back.  And so merry and bright.  Won't you guide my sled tonight?  :)  Everybody sing!
We're not done yet though.  I need some gift wrap for my tags.  I decided to use my Brown Paper Sacks so that I could slip in some cards as gifts.  Cards are still a favorite gift that never goes out of style.  Remember that when you're trying to come up with gift ideas this year.  I know you have a little stash of supplies already waiting for you.  

This time I wanted my brown sacks to be a little fancy schmancy so I got out my wonderful Claudine Hellmuth Studio paints.  I used pink, purple and white to create the pinky/purple color on my tags...and ended up adding a dot of red to brighten up the color. 
Using Piney's Snowfall stamp set, I painted the stamps with my paint mixture and stamped directly onto the brown sacks.  Before the paint dried, I sprinkled on regular Prisma Glitter.  Oh now this is cute and sparkly.
So now I have two sets of gift sacks/tags ready to go for the holidays.  I'm storing all my goodies in cute bread tins with doilies.  So when it's times to do my wrapping, I'll just be able to shop in my own little gift wrap section.  So fun!
Hope you enjoy!  


Good morning fantastic friends of mine.  Thanks to all of you, I won the guest designer spot for Cosmo Cricket next month!!!!!! Woohoo!  I will be receiving my goodie box soon and will be creating projects for the month of November.  You can watch the video here where Julie announces the winner.  Man my pits were dripping wet.....then I snarfed down a Kit Kat that was supposed to be used for a blog post.  :)  I couldn't have won without all of you casting your votes for me.  THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.  And this couldn't have happened at a better time.  I was feeling quite bummed over the weekend and my creativity was zapped.  When you share and share and share......and then someone takes advantage of your ideas and tries to profit from them....it's very disheartening.  I didn't want to create a single thing.  But then I got the announcement from Cosmo Cricket and I read all of your wonderful comments on their blog post.  I was brought to tears by your kindness.  I realized that it only took one person to  bring me down....but there were dozens and dozens of you out there lifting me up.  So I thank you again, I am truly humbled. 

Okay, enough of the gushy stuff.  I'm getting the girls off to school and then I'm having a canning session with my mom.  Can you believe the gardens are still producing?  We have oodles of jalapeno peppers so we're trynig our hand at Candied Jalapenos.  Stay tuned for a new post yet today.....I'll be featuring some adorably cute Christmas tags and a new item from my Etsy shop.

October Papertrey Projects

Hi there friends!  Here we are on another Monday, hope your week is off to a good start.  I thought I would share some of my Papertrey projects from this month's release.  

This first project is my favorite, using Dawn's On Ice set and coordinating die.  This set features a cute ice skate with lots of sock combinations to stamp at the top of the skate.  
I  used Pine's new Christmas Prints patterned papers along with a glitter pen on the skate blade, some chunky snow glitter, border dies, buttons tied with twine and a vintage-y jingle bell tied to a bow.  Such a chilly little card.
This card features Holiday Sparkle, Big & Bold Holiday Wishes, more of the Christmas Prints paper, Distressed Dots paper and the new ribbons and buttons.  The cute reindeer was colored with Copic markers...I love coloring in images on Kraft paper because they just pop off the page.  The Holiday Sparkle set is full of other images that have spaces to fill in with rhinestones like I did for the reindeer's eyes and nose.
Here's my anniversary card that I made for Eric this year.  It features Pine's Mini Scrapbook Series: Journaling Circles sets along with other PTI sentiments.  Background papers are Distressed Dots and Green Tea Leaves.  The big tag is from Tag Sale 2.
You can view all of the new products from this month on the Papertrey home page here.  Hope you enjoyed this month's release.  I know that I am inspired to get a head start on my holiday projects.  I'm setting a stamping date to work on tons of Christmas tags.  It will be so nice when gift wrapping time comes along and I will have cute tags to add to presents.

Candy Cane Christmas

Edit:  I just had to paste this comment from Renee in here.  I totally agree with your thoughts on  Christmas.  The materialistic part of Christmas stresses me out....the family part, I love.

From Renee:  I, too, remember my Daddy talking about being a child during those times and how if there was an orange or candy cane and a new pair of pants or shoes, it was a good Christmas. And now our children...well, lets just say they would report us to CPS for being bad parents if that were to happen!:) And though I love the Holidays, and am by far not a Scrooge, sometimes I really want to go back to those simpler times, where it was about the spirit of Christmas, the togetherness and not the gifts. So I love this idea and can't wait for more! 

Hello friends.  I hope you Papertrey fans got plenty of goodies at tonight's release.  I know after creating projects with this month's holiday products, I am definitely getting into the holiday spirit.  I'm really looking forward to getting a head start on my holiday cards and gifts.

With that said, I am happy to announce a new Papertrey feature here on my blog.  It's called Make + Save.  The concept for Make + Save is that I will be blogging posts all about creating inexpensive and fun gift and packaging ideas, complete with supply lists and instructions.  You can read more about it here.  A link will be provided to a special section at the Papertrey Ink website that will contain a main photo of my project along with the supply list and how to instructions.  All of my projects will be grouped together and easily accessible at the Papertrey website here.

If you're familiar with my blog and stamping style, you know that I create from the heart, usually with specific people or events in mind.  I love to make cards and gifts that are practical, easily mass produced, easy on the pocket book and creative.  So without further delay, I'd like to show you my first  Make + Save project.

As a child, I loved to wrap all the presents at our house.  It think it was all that fun paper, tape and sticky bows and trying to make gifts look pretty.  But as an adult, wrapping gifts can sometimes seem more like a task than a treat simply because it's such a busy time of year and we've added two reds into the mix.  So why not get a head start on your gift wrapping and create a Candy Cane Christmas Gift Wrap Station?
Red and white is always a favorite color combination for me during the holidays.  And what better represents those two colors more than candy canes?  By grouping together a few supplies, you can start creating fun tags and gift wrap as you get a few extra minutes here and there.  For my gift wrap station, I like to take over a table in the basement and keep it clean and organized for wrapping presents.  This year, I'm going to use a silver tray that has all my smaller gift wrapping supplies in one handy place.  Plus it looks just delightful so it's almost like a centerpiece of sorts on my table.  
My first project is these embellished candy canes which will become gift topper tags.  Or they can be given out all by themselves as little candy favors...or hung on the tree or a garland.  I created them by stamping small candy canes from Tiny Treats: Christmas and the candy cane sentiment from Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers onto a Vintage Ornament Die.  The smallest of the ornament dies makes a great little tag for smaller stamped images and sentiments.  
Simply tie Fine Linen ribbon to candy canes, then tie the tags around the ribbon with Pure Poppy Baker's Twine.  Display the embellished candy canes in a cute jar or holiday themed mug or basket until it's time to use them.  These make for a cute display just sitting in my little pink drinking cup.
When it's time to wrap some gifts, simply grab a candy can and adhere it to the present with a large sticky dot.  To make the ribbon that wraps around the box, take a strip of Fine Linen Topnotch Twill and draw a line down the middle with a red Copic marker.  I used R29 for the perfect candy cane color. Wrap this around a gift box or sack and secure on the bottom side with clear tape.  So cute and so easy.  By having the candy cane embellishments done in advance, you'll be able to wrap presents with flying reindeer speed.  I plan to fill my little boxes with truffles topped with crushed candy canes.  When I find the perfect recipe, I'll be sure to share.
Next up, I have a candy cane card to match...just in case you want to get all matchy-matchy with your gift and card.  I saw in the forums that a few of you were getting worried that the Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers did not have a big candy cane image.  People, people, have we let you down before?  Of course there has to be candy canes to fit into the cute jar image.  

Insert Mishie story here:  My dad was born in the 30's during the Depression.  His family was poor and he remembers lots of times going to bed hungry with a growly tummy as a child.  He said that many times all you got for a Christmas gift was a single candy cane and maybe a small toy if times were good.  A single candy cane.  So now every holiday season, I always have candy canes around the house as a reminder to appreciate the simple things in life.  

And now look at us in this day and age.  We have candy canes galore...even on stamps!  Oh how I love this big candy cane image from the Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers collection.  The image looks great in the jar but also as a stand alone image.  To make the prettiest of candy canes, stamp the image onto cardstock and color with the R29 Copic Sketch marker.  Outline with the E43 marker to make the candy canes pop off the page.
Here comes some holiday twinklage.  Using a glue pen, color over the Copic colored candy canes then sprinkle on Papertrey glitter.  Ohhhh how shimmery and sparkly the candy canes become.  
Assemble the card as shown below...remember all the instructions are at the Make + Save link at Papertrey Ink. 
Sooo...with all this candy cane goodness, you're sure to have some visions of gift giving dancing in your head.  I hope you're inspired to get an early start on your holiday wrappings this year.  Have fun!

Stay tuned for more Make + Save posts here on the blogaroonie.  There won't be specific scheduled times for these posts....they'll just pop up from time to time.  I hope you enjoy and be sure to let me know what type of gifty ideas you'd like to see.  I'll start a list.  :)
